Prescription Lidocaine

I have a vial of liquid prescription Lidocaine HCI 1% and Epinephrine 1:100,000 for injection use. Can I rub some of the liquid on my back to relieve my severe lower back pain caused from a UTI?

    That is a question only your doctor or pharmacist can answer.  No one here is medically qualified to provide such an answer.

    I am not a medical professional. I comment on personal experiences 
  • I have prescription lidocaine patches which are 5 percent I think-(too lazy to get up and look, lol.). I think you can buy 4 percent lidocaine patches over the counter.  I see them advertised on TV all the time. The patches are carried at a great many stores.  You don't need a prescription for those.  My daughter buys the over the counter ones and they work well for her.  There is also a lidocaine cream that is prescription only as far as I know which I use on my neck.

    As for your question, I agree with Ron.
